Going Under Is Going on Sale!
Good news! Just in time for the countdown to the holidays, Going Under is going on sale! Starting on Thursday, December 21, I’ll be running a Kindle Countdown Deal.
How Does That Work?
You’re probably familiar with Kindle Countdown Deals. Essentially, they work by dropping the price of a book a set number of increments for a set number of days. For seven days between December 21 and December 28, you’ll be able to pick up Going Under at a discounted rate.
What will the discount be? Until 4 PM PST on December 24, you’ll be able to grab the book for $0.99 USD. After, the price increases to $1.99, before returning to the original list price.
You Deserve a Present
I know, I know. Some of you would probably like to see the greater discount after the 24th. Many people get cash or gift cards on the 25th. But if you want to take advantage of the best price for the book, you’re allowed to give yourself a present. I mean, it’s less than a dollar. You deserve that much, right?
The $1.99 price point is still a sale too. It’s not as good, sure, but a sale is a sale is a sale. And I hope you get more than $2 on an Amazon gift card or in cash from even your stingiest relatives or co-workers.
I Don’t Live in the US
I don’t live there either. I’m an itinerant visitor to the US of A most of the time. I feel you on this. As a Canadian, I perfectly understand the frustration of watching my neighbors to the south of the border get all the sale fun. Memorial Day sales, Presidents’ Day sales, even Black Friday deals aren’t nearly as good or as common here.
So I didn’t forget about you. The sale is also happening in the UK marketplace. UK friends, you can pick the book up for £0.99 for the entire promotion time. That’s right, you might actually come out on top here: You get to save 50 percent the entire time! The Americans get a deeper discount, but only for part of the promotion.
I Don’t Live in the UK Either!
Neither do I. We’re both getting shafted here. Let’s go storm Amazon’s fortress and …
I’ll tell you what you can do! If you live in Italy, Spain, Brazil, France, Mexico, Canada, Germany, India, Australia, and Japan, you might be a member of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited service. If you’re a Prime member, you may have access to the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. You don’t need to buy my book if you’ve already paid for either of these services.
You also don’t need to wait for a sale! Read it right now instead.
I Don’t Have Either of Those Services
Um, the book is $2.99? Honestly, I don’t want you to sign up for KU or KOLL, because those are more expensive than the book itself. If you plan to read a lot, it can be a great deal. But if you just want one book? Just buy one book.
You could also wait for a bit—another sale may crop up in the near future (hint hint, nudge nudge). I may also have some upcoming contests, including prizes, in January. Submerged, the second book in the series, arrives January 30, so you can probably hang tight.
Psst … There Are Excerpts
They’re pretty much littered around the site right now, actually. You can read all of Chapter One for free, right here.
The Halloween chapter is also available for your reading pleasure. And if you’ve been following along with the Twelve Days of Heat, you already know there’s some more fun in store on the site for the next week or so.
Mark Your Calendars!
Long story short: Going Under. Going on sale. December 21 to 28.
